Three posts in a week! The Fells are officially on a blogging streak. I feel a little silly posting my Pinterest wall art projects, especially since I received some amazing gifts of art this weekend from Julia Kuo! I’m not sure where to put them just yet, but I can’t stop staring at them! Aren’t they stunning?
Anyway, here goes – I’ll start with canvas wall art, and I’ll finish up this series with our wall art made with other mediums.
This wall art, inspired by Hey Now, Whoa Now!, was made by simply cutting, laying out, and modge-podging fabric scraps to canvas. It was a little time consuming, but very straightforward and easily customizable!
This next piece came from an idea at Two Girls Being Crafty, which was an at-home version of a Cost Plus World Market painting.
…I absolutely love going to World Market, but as Joe loves to point out, we’ve had more than one unsuccessful purchase there, including flavored coffee that wasn’t so flavorful and pillows with pom-pom fringe that immediately de-pommed themselves. We’re still finding poms in our couch cushions. Even Butters has no interest in those…
Anyway, here’s our final ‘traditional’ piece of wall art. It’s also inspired by Two Girls Being Crafty and it’s made by with paint chips (you know, those samples found at home hardware stores? I always feel slightly guilty ‘stealing’ them without an intention to paint…). I just cut them in equal sizes using a homemade stencil, laid them out, and modge podged them onto a canvas. I won’t lie – it’s pretty tough to keep these little babies from flipping and tossing themselves all over the place. It’s a project that certainly requires some patience!
The next post will include our final wall art pieces – including mirror frames, bottle and plate displays, wine cork coasters, and even a wall hanging made from a doormat!
